The Wicked Bee
"It is our goal to provide our customers with pure, all natural candles that complement a healthy lifestyle, and have a positive impact on the environment."
The Wicked Bee Candle Company was established in 2009 from a desire to make natural products and express creativity. In the winter of 2009 I decided to take a beeswax candle making course in northern Ontario for fun and immediately fell in love with the art of beeswax candle making. This is when I decided to pursue making beeswax candles as a part-time hobby business.
We set up shop in a small studio beside our historic schoolhouse and purchased turkey roasters to melt small batches of beeswax. A website with an online store was launched and we started attending small craft shows. Initially there were many people who didn't understand the difference between beeswax candles and paraffin wax candles.
For many years The Wicked Bee Candle Company remained a small business with a small customer base. When the demand for our product began to grow we expanded our beeswax studio and started using commercial melting tanks.
Our intention as a company is to have a positive impact on the environment, while using sustainable processes.
Our shop is powered by solar energy which is used to heat our beeswax melting tanks as well as our shop.
An idea, passion and hard work turned our dream into an amazing reality.
